11:18 am
11:19 am
11:20 am
almost done with six days good for fieldwork.. according to the iowa crop progress report.. 86 percent of corn is off the fields.. near the five year average.. moisture content for all grain is at a solid 16 percent.. 95 percent of soybeans are harvested.. about five days behind the five year average.. south central and south wes you are on in the election, regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, the sun would come up in the morning, and that is one bit of prognosticating that actually came true. the sun is up. and i know that everybody had a long night. i did as well. i had a chance to talk to president-elect trump last night
11:21 am
to congratulate him on winning the election, and i had a chance to invite him to come to the white house tomorrow to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies. now, it is no secret that the president-elect and i have some pretty significant differences. but remember, eight years ago, president bush and i had some pretty significant differences. but president bush's team could not have been more professional, or we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running. and one thing you realize quickly in this job is that the presidency and the vice presidency is bigger than any of us. so i have instructed my team to follow the example that president bush's team set eight years ago, and to work as hard as we can to make this a successful transition for the president-elect because we are
11:22 am
in uniting and leading the country. the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. and over the next few months, we are going to show that to the world. i also had a chance last night to speak with secretary clinton, and i just had a chance to hear her remarks. i could not be prouder of her. she has lived an extraordinary life of public se she was an outstanding senator for the state of new york, and she could not have been a better secretary of state. i'm proud of her. a lot of americans look up to her. her candidacy and nomination was historic and sends a message to our daughters all across the country that they can achieve at the highest levels of politics, and i am absolutely confident
11:23 am
for people here in the united states, and all around the world. now everybody is sad when their side loses an election. but the day after, we have to remember that we're actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we're not democrats first. we're in the republicans first. we are americans first. we're patriots first. we all want what's best for this country. that's what i heard in mr. trump's remarks last night. that's what i heard when i spoke to him directly. and i was hardened by that. that's what the country needs. a sense of unity, a sense of
11:24 am
rule of law and a respect for each other. i hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition, and i certainly hope that's how his presidency has a chance to begin. i also told my team today to keep their heads up. because the remarkable work they have done day in and day out, often without a lot of fanfare, often with a lot of, a lot of attention, work in agencies. work in obscure areas of policy that make government run better and make it more responsive, and make it more efficient. and make it more service-friendly so that it's actually helping more people,
11:25 am
stronger, better country. than the one that existed eight years ago. so win or lose in this election, that was always our mission. that was our mission from day one. and everyone on my team should be extraordinarily proud of everything that they have done. and so should all the americans that i have had a chance to meet all across this country. who do the hard work of day. teachers in schools, doctors in e.r. clinic, small businesses, putting their all into starting something up, making sure they are treating their employees well. all the important work that's dope done by moms and dads and families and congregations and
11:26 am
of perfecting this union. this was a long and hard fought campaign. a lot of our fellow americans are exalted today. a lot of our partners are less so. it is hard and sometimes contentious and noisy. it's not always inspiring. but to the young people who got and may be disappointed by the results, i just want you to know, you have to stay encouraged. don't get cynical. don't ever think you can't make a difference. secretary clinton said this morning, fighting for what is right is worth it.
11:27 am
the path that this country has taken has never been a straight line. we zig and zag, and sometimes we move in ways that some people think is forward, and others think is moving back. and that's okay. i have lost elections before. joe hasn't. [ laughter ] but, you know. so i have been -- i have been -- >> you beat me badly. [ laughter ] >> that's the way politics works sometimes. we try really hard to persuade people that we're right. and then people vote. and if we lose, we learn from our mistakes, we do some
11:28 am
we brush ourselves off, we get back in the arena. we go at it. we try even harder the next time. the point though is that we all go forward. with a presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens. because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. that's how this country has moved forward for 240 years. that's how we have pushed boundaries a around the world. that's how we have expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens. it's how we have come this far. and that's why i'm confident that this incredible journey that we are on as americans will go on. and i'm looking forward to doing everything that i can to make sure that the next president is successful in that. i have said before, i think of
11:29 am
runner. you take the baton, you run your best race and hopefully by the time you hand it off, you're a little further ahead. you made a little progress, and i can say we have done that, and i want to make sure that handoff is well-executed because ultimately, we're all on the same team. all right. thank you very much, everybody. [ applause ] >> president o told his team to keep their heads up and lead by example. leaving with a spring in his step. might have been forced, but there's rooted and respect for the peaceful transition, and for our institutions he said for the rule of law, his respect ffr democracy. we are all on the same team now, we must all root for the success of donald trump.
11:30 am
shuc sugar coat the differences, we we have to go forward in the spirit together. >> there are people that are very, very distressed today. people who supported him and hillary clinton who real are wor worried about the country where they just can't imagine a trump presidency, and he is trying to make it seem as normal as humanly possible. this is the way it works. democracy is messy. it's noisy. you lose some elections, y you take the baton and go forward, and this is not the end of the world, but i think that was -- that's why he is doing that because he knows that some of their followers are really in a state of true distress. >> he knows it's what he must say. and he said from one baton to another, the metaphor might break down based on what you were saying. the passoff may be clean, and he
11:31 am
know that donald trump in his first 100 days is committed to undoing much of what president obama has done. >> he is passing the baton to somebody who is not only promising to undo that legacy, george, but somebody who questioned his very eligibility to be president of the united states. this is not any baton passoff. this is not any intermural scrimmage. this was intensely personal for the president. donald trump questioned whether or not he was an american eligible to be president of the united states. >> you say it was intensely personal. in fact, he told african-american voters during this campaign, he would consider it a personal insult if they didn't turn out in the numbers for hillary clinton that they did for him. he also said perhaps, this is the most important part of his comments. the presidency is bigger than any one person. >> he promised to make that
11:32 am
time around and, you know, he talked about the transition from president bush, which was a very effective transition. president bush was very dedicated to the idea of trying to make president obama -- give him a shot at being a successful president. >> it's believing in the institutions of democracy. and barack obama and george bush do very profoundly. what we have to find out is how donald trump feels about those institutions. he has never served in them and we really don't know what his commitment to them is, and closely. >> the president said he was hardened by what he heard, and we'll see in the next ritual. they will meet at the white house tomorrow. thank you, jon and cokie. back to your regular programming.
